Recommended Posts

Sorry to waste some time but I was wondering if anybody can help me on this. My GTA IV wouldn't ever start on my other computers and I just bought a Toshiba Satellite C55 Series laptop. I didn't try to install it yet because i'll just get agrivated if it wont install right again! Anybody know why it does that????

Just because it's brand new, doesn't mean it will run the game. You can find your computer specs by right-clicking "My Computer" or "Computer" then clicking on properties. it should bring up a page with your computer details on it like RAM, Processor, Operating System etc.

 

EDIT: I didn't see you edit your post. I did some researching. and it turns out that your model laptop isn't so  great in the gaming department. so it may not run GTA 4 (it's possible it could work on low settings)

As CouthInk said, it's not a guarantee that the game will run even if the computer is brand new. You will need to provide a lot more information about your PC and your problem in general.

The following reasons why your game might not open up is because of:

-Did not install patch 1.0.7.0 [LCPDFR Purposes]

-Installing way too many vehicle mods that increased the memory of the game, not allowing to start [Happens on very poor to poor computers]

-Minimum Requirements for specs are too low below the required specs needed

-Installing too many script modifications [Having a ridiculous amount of scripts in the game]

-ENB Graphics modifications [some ENB's contain a lot of memory which is probably not allowing the game to start because it cannot handle it (poor computers)]

-Defragmentation on hard drive causing the game not to start [ONLY ON POOR COMPUTERS]

-Processes in the background, RAM overused [if there so many processes in your PC "Start Task Manager" - having many processes on a very poor RAM can cause GTA to either not start or might eventually crash]

 

You can disable "UNREQUIRED" (LOOK CAREFULLY) some processes by clicking [CTRL+ALT+DELETE] and click Start Task Manager, then end some processes, WARNING: DO NOT END THE ONES THAT YOU ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE! CAN BE VERY RISKY IF DISABLING IMPORTANT PROCESSES

 

So if you cannot figure it out, then it is that you might want to buy a new computer.
